Dave I agree completely. Since day one, you may recall, I said I wanted to do this right, now some guy hanging lights, but a professional lighting decorator. That has taken me to the point that for example, this project I will finish up today, I will add out of pocket whatever light strands necessay to complete the presentation, and just keep x,y,z on inventory as an in cas epops up. I have searched the market to eliminate the bulbs from bush to bush if I just can't get them all in one for presentation purposes, I use the necessary measures to eliminate the exposed cords, actually run a proactive service approach so if there is something wrong, I am aware of it prior to the client.
Without question, it makes the difference, it eliminates the "guy hanging lights" and adds to the "professional" that we all should be striving to be. Though I don;t service 100 clients, the ones I do pay me well. When my opportunities present, they are generally attached to high profile possibilities, and they are willing to pay for the "professional."
I just really have an appreciation that we are able to affect the general public in such a way as I have been allowed to experience.
